CABINET FOR HEALTH AND FAMILY SERVICES V. HON. MARGARET HUDDLESTON
FAMILY LAW – Cabinet’s discretion in placement of child care
AFFIRMING IN PART, VACATING IN PART, AND REMANDING (COMBS)
COA vacated that portion of the court’s order limiting the Cabinet’s discretion in determining the proper placement of the children committed to its care and which required the Cabinet to maintain the residence in Simpson County of two children committed to its care. The Cabinet argued that the court abused its discretion by exceeding its authority when it restricted the Cabinet’s ability to determine the best placement for the children in order to achieve its goal of family reunification.
